Give them a number along with the name.  Alphabetical doesn’t really help unless you have exactly 26 tables; a guest who is standing at Butterfly Street and wants to go to Geranium Street will still have no idea how close or far away it is.  The whole point of a table number is to help you find your table.

I remember one wedding where the guests were wandering around for awhile, in candlelight, trying to find the names of their tables. Someone had a cute idea, but they weren’t alphabetical, and the didn’t have numbers, and it took forever. Plus the band was playing, and it was difficult to talk over the sound. I can’t remember a wedding where they weren’t removed by staff, fairly quickly, to make room for other things.

I would do alphabetical and have a sign on the table with the street name that is big enough to read from far away. 

Curious, how will people know which table they are at?

Large signs at the tables with their names on it and put them in alphabetical order.

Table names work well if you have a map of the seating plan at the entrance. You could tie it in with your street names.
